(...continued from here.)
I just acquired some different colors of 550 cord and some 3/4" fastex buckles. I made a paracord bracelet for myself and thought I would offer to make some for folks on here. If you are not familiar with these, many soldiers wear these in order to carry a length of paracord with them easily. And, I suppose, also for the "coolness" factor. All parts are mil-spec...the 550 cord has actual strands inside instead of fibers so that you can use both the inner strands and the casing for different uses. The buckles and the cord are mil-spec and made in the United States -- not imported.
Price will be $20.00 + $5.00 shipping via USPS with DC for any number of bracelets up to a pound...that's a lot of bracelets! Postal Money order only, please. If you have some other payment method in mind, please send me a PM.
I will only ship within the US.
1 bracelet for $20
2 for $36
3 for $51
4 or more would be $16 each.
These are HEAVY DUTY. I saw some on eBay that were $15.00...mine have 6 strands of 550 cord inside the braid instead of 2 (like the ebay ones), so it is much more substantial. It takes a little more time to do them this way as well. If you want one of the cheapie ones with only two strands, I can do that for $15.00, but it will not be as nice as the six strand one and will slip around on the fastex buckle at the ends. Some of the ones I have seen around have monkey's fists on the ends to secure them...they are also only made with two inner strands, as stated above and feel very cheesy compared to mine. The ones with the little balls on the end may be "cute" and all, but the ones the real soldiers wear are not made like that. Neither do they wear ones secured by ball chains and they do not have the cute little metal beads woven in. And...mine are CUSTOM FIT!!! Made to order! No need to be "sized down".
The colors I have are:
Desert Tan (light tan)
Sand (very light tan, AKA buff)
Coyote Brown (dirt brown)
Desert Camo (3 shades of tan + black flecks...AKA "MARPAT")
Multicam (OD green + 2 shades of tan)
OD (olive drab) green (just regular old, Army olive drab green)
Dark OD (Slightly darker shade of OD)
OD green with reflective tracer
Silver (dingy white)
Safety Orange (This is what *I* started calling this color years ago when I first started offering these...the manufacturer calls it something else, so if you see anyone else calling it "safety orange", they copied me.)
Neon Lime Green
Rose (light) Pink
Pink camouflage (various shades of pink all in one cord...would look good with purple and the neon lime green for the 80's look... )
Kelly Green (Emerald or medium green, really)
I also have quite a bit of white cord that is the type sailors would use. It would work well incorporated into a bracelet also.
I have 3/4" buckles in foliage green, tan, and black.
If you would like one, please let me know your wrist size for the wrist you intend to wear it on. For proper fit, it should be measured with a fiberglass tailor's tape (cloth ones stretch over time)...or -- cut a piece of paper, wrap it around your wrist until it overlaps over the thickest part...the wristbone, mark where it overlaps and then measure the length with a ruler. I need the exact measurement to get it to fit correctly. Please do not add any extra to that measurement or it will not fit right. If you do not do it this way, the fastex buckle can catch your skin and leave a bruise. Trust me...you do not want to do this. It smarts a bit.
As these are custom fit, I will need payment first and then I will make your bracelet. I will make them as soon as possible and will try to ship them within a day of payment...usually, they'll go out the same day! I am a US soldier and am selling these in order to generate some funds to upgrade my personal equipment. I also enjoy making them and hope that folks will be impressed with the quality and enjoy wearing them.

I have a new style bracelet I wanted to go ahead and offer here now...it is the Type 1 Rescue bracelet. If you need your cord deployed in a hurry (like, a few seconds) and don't have time to mess around untying a cobra bracelet, this is the one you want.
Unfortunately, they take a VERY long time to make (around 5+ hours or so), so cost a bit more than my superior cobra-knot bracelets.
Here are some pics:
They are $38 shipped to your door (within the USA).
The colors of this cord are limited, unfortunately. Right now, I have the following in this cord:
Ranger Green (looks VERY close to olive drab (OD) green to me) with black tracer thread
Camo Green (looks very close to foliage green) with yellow tracer thread
Khaki (close to coyote brown...I can't tell the difference between the two, but the manufacturer called it khaki...)
I have some white cord with different color tracer thread for ID. I may be able to get some more cord in the same size, but it will not be mil-spec like the above cord is.
Thanks for checking these out!
